This drop costs 170 bucks with the promise of an upgrade over the HEM2. Surprise, surprise, I received an HEM2. As an aside, and for the record, Blue Boxes have never resulted in anything other than a base model for me.
A short while later MD offers an HEM2 drop for 130 something bucks.
Coincidence? Shady Business?
After hundreds of drops, I'm starting to lose my love for this platform.
All is fair. Just consider yourself unlucky. I'm from the Philippines and I did this drop along with two family members. We got one Hem8 and two pairs of Hem6. Good luck on the next one.
Happy for you, though I still question the randomness.
The main point, however, was the fact that the HEM2s were more expensive to get because of the BlueBox fanfare and were subsequently offered at a much lower price a week later.
It is like a lotto I guess. Those overpaying for cheaper IEMs are actually coverring the price for the more expensive ones.
Don't participate in the blue boxes then. You knowingly purchases the box for the chance for the upgrade model.
Don't whine when you weren't selected. That's the nature of these things.
My OP's point was that the base model HEM2 was offered at a much higher price as part of a blue box a week before being offered as a standalone drop for a much lower price.
Before attempting to subject people to your dictations, it helps to first read and correctly understand what was previously posted.
You purchased the blue box at a higher price HOPING for the upgraded model. The chance cost you extra.
I'll stand aside while you continue your hypocritical tirade, though.
That's not how blue boxes work.
You purchase at prices that are great for the base model, and the chances of getting an upgrade and/or a prize are simply incentive for more people to join the drops and thereby move units for the product company.
You do not pay a slightly higher price for the base model for the hopes of getting an upgrade.
Thanks for your characterizations, by the way; I'm sure someone making half-assed assumptions on a daily basis often has use for them.
Some guys are born with all the luck while others not. It is just probability. Like me, I saw my friend won some lucky draws a number of times, like in campus or at some event/gathering. As for me, I don't remember that I ever won any draw in my entire life.. I don't believe it too, but I guess someone has to be that 0.01% guy to make up the number. And I happen to be the chosen one -_-'
I hope that for the rest of your draws you're the lucky one
